Fdean, 28 May 2017Check jerryrig youtube mi6, he could not break the mi6. Just saw it. Pretty good build!
Typical Chinese stuff. Last year's exterior, but this year's Chip. A cheap LCD panel, though wise enough to keep it on 1080p. IR because some ppl need it, but not SD card and 3.5mm jack that everybody needs it. They can afford gorilla Glass 5, yet they cant afford an AMOLED screen, where even an 80$ Lumia can. It favors speakers overs headsets in 2017, just because Apple wanted to maximize their profits and force everyone buy their new expensive headsets. Well Apple makes money from this, but Xiaomi will surely lose them! That's what happens when you blindly copy others. Mi 5 was successful because Samsung don't change the exterior, so the 2015 S6 body, xiaomi copied was relevant in 2016, but this year, is the mini bezel year, both Samsung and LG have mini bezels and soon Apple too, so xiaomi and the rest of the big bezel beasts are now absolete. And in their quest to blindly copy Apple and introduce even the smaller useless detail, the phone now costs 650$ in Europe, where the S7, they were trying to reproduce, sells at 450$ and it has an AMOLED screen, a camera able to shoot at night time, SD card slot, waterproofness and 3.5 jack. Even the S8 is now down to 650$ which ads a night selfie, bigger screen on the same body, the new design that make it stand out and still holds the SD card and even includes a 100$ headset!
Maybe next year xiaomi, when you copy the S8 and chances are the S9 will have the same design, you will remain relevant...
Of course xiaomi gives hi performance, because it has smaller resolution. Noticed this when you were playing game on a pc, higher resolution made your game frame rate lower.
Lola, 27 May 2017If you want small screen and new soc mi6 for you and if you want bigger screen and last year s... more...the day that 5.15 inches (basically a phablet by the standards of any other era) is called a small screen.
BTW I had called it back in 2010 (w iPad's release), "that's the natural progression, people would love the tablets and forget the phones".
Only twist is that we're still calling them phones, but increasingly they have search mini tablet size (basically a pocketable tablet), phone calls is a strong minority of their function, thumb use has almost gone the way of the dodo (the primary way to control cordless phones since the 1980s) and they're increasingly not pocketable (another attribute of " cordless phones").
The age of the tablet is here. Basically why traditional tablets are dying. Mini tablets have eaten their lunch.
pramod5774, 27 May 2017Now I want to ask only one question : if one plus 3T and Mi6 are at same price which one shoul... moreIf you want small screen and new soc mi6 for you and if you want bigger screen and last year soc 3t for you

well,514$ price,480$+34$ shipping in EU warehouse,so no customs fees no VAT,not exactly cheap by any standards,possibly best bang for your buck right now..one+5 comes this sommer but will be way over 500$ surely..but it looks great,killer performance and finally decent camera..only a slight problem finding
NickiName, 27 May 2017XZ Premium has 4K HDR display, please don't make me laugh of the statement that 1080p looks be... moreAll lies generated by the mind of a fanboy.
Sony's 4k is 1080p in everything bad photos/movie, so yes you get lower PPI in most of everything (given the bigger screen).
XZP's camera is universally hated and easily the worst this year 'round. Just compare the samples with Xiaomi's. You have eyes, don't you?
You can put soft buttons on Xiaomi you know. But who wants that when you already have hard buttons? It basically has as big as XZP's screen despite being smaller because a lot of XZP's useful areas is wasted by soft buttons. Soft buttons were meant to eliminate the chin, Sony understood their purpose completely wrong.
Fingerprint placement if much better on the front because you don't need to handle the phone when on a table. It's basically half of the uses of the fingerprint scanner. Being able to launch a phone without taking it in your hand. It's revolutionary once you use it and can't do without it. Of course you wouldn't know that because you probably only used a Sony in your life and they never did fingertip right. Fingertip on Sonys is cumbersome at best.
Also worse battery (despite the much bigger body, how did they manage to do that, I'm still wondering)
Less ram, meaning less future proof and far slower (when yo disable MIUI's stringent ram management).
Lastly Sony gives up after two years on their devices. 3 is the most I've ever seen. Xiaomi keeps them upgraded for 4 years minimum.
The only that XZP sights is the front facing speakers. Still they're tiny, tinny and bad. Phone speakers would always be a bad idea. Now a good idea to have your phone build around them.
Bantu, 27 May 2017Someone here who's familiar with audio tech , can you please explain how the Mi6 can have good... moreUSB type C supports both: If you use the provided 3.5mm adapter it would use the internal DAC, however, if your adapter has a DAC included it will use that DAC. Xiaomi used good DAC chips in their previous phones (the Mi 5 uses the Sabre ES9018K2M) and I expect more of the same here.
After comparing i phone 7+ and mi6 regular cameras in photo comparison tool, the results are:
In good light: mi6 performs better with more detail and better dynamic range while 7+
images have more contrast.
In low light: 7+ performs slightly better.
Reply after comparing yourself from photo tool.
It's a pretty good smartphone. The main deal-breakers are the lack of the 3.5 mm headphone jack and the MicroSD card.
